Hi I'm an early thirtier who's been messing around with those strings for about 2 à 3 years but recently ('bout 2months ago) gained intrest in playing Delta blues style 'cause that's the musicstyle I like the most.
Especially Son House, Willie Brown, M.Fred McDowell and so many others...
English ain't my first language so I'll try not to wright too much mistakes.
Greetings

P.S.: were can I change my password ?(thanks)

Welcome, Silenus!

I'll bet that if you get a new Johnson, your girl friend will end up loving it!

I'm sure about that 'cause she also loves the sound of those delta players.
I'm still checkin' lots of axes to finally end up with one good electric, one good acoustic and a spare acoustic...although that is/was the thought but the more I try the more impossible this thought seems to be...
Future will tell...

P.S.: will my Epiphone PR 350 M do good for playin' blues (I know it's more in the playin' then in the instrument but want to have that ol' sound)?
Therefor I was thinkin' of puttin steel electirc string on it to get a more older sound. Had this once on another acoustic and sounded kinda good but in this astyle of playin'? Is this a good or bad idea? (now I have Elixir acoustics on her)

Somebody said something nice to me when I played my Strat at him.
"Was you born in the Delta?" Strat is nice, might try a Tele again one day. As for acoustic, my little Italian KD28 has just such a sweet voice, so don't go thinking money = sound.

[updated:LAST EDITED ON Oct-10-05 AT 07:48 AM (EST)]No not at all...I hope one day I'll find me one of the cheapest axe on earth that'll please me...I mostly like heavy worn no-name things the most actually...(have one now that I need to string).
For those sliders here...bought me a Dunlop chrome slide but didn't like the sound of it one my acoustic (on electric=ok) so went to a plummer and got me some brass pipe (one 5cm another 6cm; I know I'm a metric guy) and suits me whole lot better. Only it doesn't fit thightly enough on the finger: solution = gonna get me some doorstrip (you know with the soft side and a sticky side) and stick one or 2 inside my "brasser"...

Still thanks for the welcomes :)

I've got nickel plated steel wound electric strings on my Johnson Tricone and love how they sound. Haven't done that yet with my wood guitars, because I've got a bunch of bronze strings around here and I'm afraid I'd like the electric strings too well. When stock on hand gets low, I'll try 'em.

You can play blues on whatever you've got. That's what the old guys did.

I'm thinkin about nailing 3 strings to a barn wall and using a pop bottle under em for tension! Seem to be a good start for RJ!
